Taylor enters tournament as top-ranked allrounder


West Indies Women star player, Stafanie Taylor has entered the ICC Women's World Cup 2013 as the world's leading allrounder in One Day Internationals (ODI).

Taylor is currently enjoying a handsome lead of nearly 100 rating points over Australia's Lisa Sthalekar and is expected to consolidate her position.

According to the latest Reliance ICC Women's ODI Player Rankings, released on Wednesday, Taylor is out front on 453 points while the second ranked Sthalekar is on 364 rating points.

Taylor's teammate, Shanel Daley sits at number five in the allrounders' rankings.

Taylor is also on the heels of India's Mithali Raj on the batting list. The West Indian allrounder is 22 points behind Raj, who tops the batting table with 767 rating points.

Taylor is ranked seventh in bowling with 608 points, one spot behind teammate Anisa Mohammed on 630.

The fight for the top slot in the Reliance ICC Women's Player Rankings for ODI bowlers is very interesting. England's Katherine Brunt heads the bowlers' table with 777 rating points, but will face a tough challenge from Sthalekar, who is second with 764.

The reliance ODI player rankings will next be updated on February 18, at the conclusion of the ICC Women's World Cup.
